Thirty students and teachers from St. Martin Kaewa Secondary School, Masinga were treated to a memorable educational tour of Mombasa as a reward for emerging the overall winners of the Phase 1 of the Green Initiative Challenge, (GIC) that was concluded at the end of last year.
The three-day trip was courtesy of Bamburi Cement Ltd, one of the KenGen Foundation partners in the GIC Phase 2 program.
It was a befitting reward to the school, which had earlier on received numerous awards during the conclusion of the GIC Phase I including a 20,000 Littre water tank, a Ksh. 40,000 cash prize, and certificates. The school recorded the highest survival rate of seedlings and excelled in use of innovation in growing an impressive small forest and a woodlot in their school compound, beating over 80 schools participating in the competition.
The students and their minders were accommodated at Milele Beach Complex, a unique non- smoking, and non- alcoholic hospitality establishment along the white sands of Bamburi Beach.
